Tinnitus is the medical term for any noise that people hear in one ear, both ears or in their head. These sounds do not come from outside the head, although they may occasionally sound as if they do.
People experience tinnitus in many different ways but it is normally described as a ringing sound. However, some people will hear other sounds such as buzzing, humming, whistling, tunes or songs.
Sometimes tinnitus noise beats in time with your pulse - this is known as pulsatile tinnitus. (https://www.actiononhearingloss.org.uk/how-we-help/information-and-resources/publications/tinnitus/pulsatile-tinnitus)
